Government investigations and enforcement efforts have grown rapidly in the past several years.  The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Department of Justice (DOJ), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and state attorneys general have come after businesses in a big way, generating a flurry of headlines.  What is not getting publicity is the enormous cost of responding to these government investigations.  Fortunately, insurance policies provide valuable coverage for many of these investigations.  
In this program, we will discuss how to make the most out of your insurance, including:
The insurance coverage you need;
The types of polices that can provide coverage;
What constitutes a “claim” that triggers coverage for an investigation;
Notice requirements and the critical and often complex task of providing timely notice;
How to push your insurance company for coverage.
